On 8th December Street Parish Council agreed to make a request to County Highways for the road closure in Farm Road to be changed to weekends only in December following representations from businesses in Farm Road and the High Street. Highways in consultation with the Parish Council has decided to keep the road closure as it is until it ends on 30th December for safety reasons. The footfall in Clarks Village is almost the same in the week as at the weekend and it is likely that the schools will be closing earlier than usual for the Christmas break. It is also felt that a part time closure may cause confusion. As a compromise it was also agreed that the Parish Council would arrange for advertising boards for businesses in Farm Road to be displayed at the crossing within the barriers. It should be noted that there will not be a market in the High Street on 24th or 31st December.
